Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes

Made this on a random whim on Christmas Day and they came out pretty good  – surprising for me 😉 This version of coconut flour pancakes is fluffier than my last one, and  just as delicious. You can use regular eggs instead of egg whites (or 1 egg plus 2 egg whites); that might make the pancakes denser (and probably tastier!) so let me know if you do try the recipe that way.

Ingredients:

1/2 coconut flour

3/4 cup egg whites

1 small or 3/4 large banana, mashed

1 tsp flax (can add more)

1/2 – 1tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

Method:

1. Spray a griddle with cooking spray (or use coconut oil) and heat on medium heat.

2. While griddle is heating, mix all the ingredients in a bowl until smooth.

3. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto griddle (if using a large griddle, you can make a large batch of pancakes at once).

4. Allow to cook for approx. 1 minute until firm, then flip and cook for an additional minute until done.

5. Repeat with remaining batter.
